Wonderful place at the edge of Alamos. Beautifully built and maintained. Quite bungalows with AC, bathroom and wifi, but no TV or phones. The loudest noise at night are the birds and geckos. In the morning, Angela will cheerfully feed you an incredible breakfast. Jeni and Dave are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended.

Would you like to stay at a magical place while exploring the beautiful town of Alamos? We enjoyed such a setting here at El Pedregal. The owners are welcoming and wonderfully accommodating, sharing the special, peaceful place they have crafted together. The casitas (private cabins) are aesthetically constructed with beautiful detailing, and have the most comfortable beds and linens. The... More

I miss it already and can't wait to go back. The beds were warm and comfortable (we were there in January) and sometimes Rosco (one of the very well behaved dogs) came to visit and spend the night which was fine with me since I missed my own dogs. Breakfast every morning was wonderful and healthy with homemade granola and... More

So loved this place and the people and of course Rosco, Chino and Mina!!!! What a beatiful way to spend time in Mexico and with family and friends. Total comfort and privacy as well as communal breakfast which was superb - sombreros "off" to the "angel" in the kitchen. Want to go bird watching and to coopers canyon next!!! thank... More

What a wonderful place! Tucked away so as to be quiet and restful (good for bird watching). Great for walking a country type setting. A very short distance in to the town of Alamo with lots more walking and shopping and a tour of a beautiful hotel and its grounds. Meal at the lodge and retreat center, the meals were... More

What an absolute treat to experience El Pedregal. The casitas were beautifully decorated with fabulous beds, furniture and additional out door seating. The surroundings were stunning with a nice nature path around the property. The delicious food and stellar service never missed a beat. The absolute highlight for us were the owners Jen and Dave MacKay. They are naturals with... More

If you like casitas in the woods with only the sounds of birds chirping to distract you, this is a good place for you. A short, walkable distance from town, this IS serenity. The queen bed has luxurious sheets and "sink into and never want to leave" mattresses. There is a small, convenient refrig. Breakfasts were very nice and Jennifer... More

Picture yourself siting under the canopy of big native trees, listening to the sound of birds and watching the colors of the Sierra Mountains change as the sun goes downs... ideal place for those who enjoy nature, but also for anyone looking to get away from their busy lives, but yet knowing that minutes away is the center of an...

As a single traveler I stayed at El Pedregal for three nights. I found the casita to be spacious and comfortable while the grounds were lovely. Especially appreciated were the area information packet in the room, the mini refrigerator, and the bird feeders which attracted a host of birds. However, I found the owner/operator to be moody and the way... More

Thanks for observations. We work hard to strike the right 'value' and pride ourselves on the high quality of our hotel and service. We often recommend Rancho Acosta as an alternative in town and recognize that our place may not be for everyone. It is unfortunate that there was a misunderstanding with the deposit...it was an honest mix up but... More

A little piece of paradise and and a short walk to town. After a long haul from the border, Jennifer could not have been more accomodating. A big, comfy king size bed, nice hot shower, our own little porch and an awesome breakfast- what's not to love!
